A year in review: ICMAB most cited articles of 2018

After another year, we look back and see how was this year's scientific research. More than 200 articles, which makes a total of more than 5,200 publications (remember that we reached the 5,000 this last February?) and more than 140,000 citations since the Institue's foundation, in 1986, which makes an average of more than 13,300 citations per year, and 27 citations per article.

The most cited articles of 2018 are shown in this post. Do you want to know which ones are they?
